    Don't bring him down or he'll turn to stone!

    British singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Jeff Lynne will be a 2014 recipient of a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    The Electric Light Orchestra frontman and founder, solo artist, Traveling Wilburys member and record producer (The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Joe Walsh) was one of seven honorees in the 2014 recording category. Lynne will be inducted next year and will permanently be remembered on the Hollywood Walk of Fame alongside icons of film, television and radio.

    "I'm thrilled to be recognized by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and feel honored to be in the great company of some of my biggest heroes," said Lynne of the honor. "Growing up in Birmingham, England, I never imagined my name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame -- it really is fantastic."

    Congrats, Jeff!
